This salad is by far one of my favorites. I love it for it’s color, ease to put together and the fact it does not have lettuce in it. Yep I’m not a fan of lettuce being the main ingredient for my food. I will eat it on a burger, in a soup or to accompany a sandwich. I like salads that are colorful, have good texture, and don’t have lettuce as the main ingredient . The avocado, chick pea and tomato salad has basic ingredients and a freshness that if very appealing.
Below is the basic recipe for this simple salad. I like to jazz mine up with this great blood orange infused olive oil from Driftless Glen Distillery. I received it as a gift from my mother-in-law and love the orange undertones it adds to the recipe. In addition I like to add some fried bacon bits or red onion to up the flavor.
Easy Tasty and Colorful
I know there are more pictures than necessary but I just love the look of this salad.
Like all foods the fresher the ingredients the better the result. If you grow your own tomatoes use them or pick the ingredients up at the nearby farmer’s market. Remember all of my recipes are free of allergens that may set off my son, this one also is free of a few other common allergens. This salad is dairy free, egg free, peanut free, tree nut free, cucumber free, and seed free.
I hope you enjoy this Tasty Tuesday recipe. Let me know what you think of it!
